    Clubs are clueless. Hes a bargain waiting to happen but no, clubs would rather sign teenagers for 100 million.

    Its quite clear he's more a natural in midfield despite his erratic tendencies at times. As you says clubs have lost the plot.

    This £35m clause thing is the most annoying thing of the summer. It clearly wasn’t true!

    It was.

    And he'll be cheap next summer too.

    At Ajax players can go cheap when they decide to stay and help the team a year longer.

    I said it earlier this summer, absolutely mental that he’s available for 35m and we weren’t in for him.

    He’d walk into our side at #10 or RW.

    It is insane that Bayern had it all worked out with him and then broke off contact. This will end up as a really stupid decision.

    I’m insanely happy he is staying another year. His left foot is pure magic. Unbelievable nobody picked him up for that amount.

    So sad that United continues to ignore attacking players from Africa. Mahrez, Mane, Salah, Auba, etc.
    And now we can add Ziyech to that list.

    All of whom would be an upgrade on the mighty Lingard or Mata.

    If we don't get Sancho, we should get him.

    He’s not “young & British”, we will not be signing him.

    I sort of agree with the age policy. We are better off signing players under 24. Maguire was the exception.

    He's born and raised in the Netherlands. He even has a local accent from where he comes from. Apart from having a dual citizenship he really has no real ties too his motherland apart from playing in the Moroccan team. Which could have been avoided if the KNVB went after him. I believe he would've definitely played for the Dutch team.

    Him and Van De Beek would've been great additions but they might want to stay or join someone else to be fair.

    We can't even get consistency in our performances, I think its almost a guarantee Sancho isn't coming here.

    So the club didn't try and sign an attacking player that wasn't british?

    I think the age policy in itself is perfectly understandable & a positive.

    I don’t watch world football like I used to but I would be shocked if there were not multiple under 24 players who were ‘gettable’ & could improve our squad quality.
    From what I saw we were after Sancho, a player the whole world rates & I highly doubt has interest in coming to us. We were then linked with Dybala, another player that didn’t seem interested.

    I don’t know the ins & outs of the club like most ITKs on the caf but we appear to have gone for unrealistic attacking targets imo.

    There are 1000s of players in the world, I refuse to believe with our extensive scouting we were unable to identify anyone other than Dan James who could improve our Midfield &/or Attack.

    We are no longer attractive to elite players/managers so we need to get to these players before they become household names.

    He stayed at Ajax ie he probably didn't want to move/ Ajax didn't want to sell

    It's no secret the club tried for Dybala amongst others. Not exactly brits.

    Are you hard of reading or wilfully ignorant?

    I said we were linked with Dybala & he didn’t want to come!

    I’m confused as to what you’ve taken offence to me saying - you’ve literally repeated what I wrote. We tried & failed with Dybala.

    I believe he stated that he had an agreement with Bayern. But they broke off the contact.

    Ajax was open for a sale, but Ziyech only wants to go to a bigger club dan Ajax, that's why he said no to Sevilla this summer. He recently (this summer) signed a new contract with Ajax.
